The Nightmare is OVER...Now its a DREAM!!!


I DID IT!  And Im still alive to Show and Tell yall about it...But, let me be CLEAR...Im BARELY alive!
My hands are swollen, my JACKED up thumb {on my Right Hand} is MORE JACKED up, my middle finger on my Left Hand I Sliced INTO the middle of the fingernail and into the tip, like..DEEP, it WOULD NOT stop bleeding, my feet are KILLIN me, my legs feel like I just ran some RIDICULOUS marathon, my arms feel like Ive been at the Gym liftin weights with those OVERLY musceled up dudes you see in those "Muscle Competition" magazines, my back feels like its been tied up like a Pretzel, my neck...well, it may NEVER be the same, and my HINEY even hurts, so its painful to even just SIT!  BUT!  Its done and Im SOOO HAPPY!  I cant wait to get back out there and start CREATING...and Im gonna have yall in there with me, along for the 2011 Journey! 
So, all that said .....
WARNING!!!   PICTURE OVERLOAD...Again { but do I EVER NOT have Pic Overload? }

Revisit where we started after the CHAOS of Christmas....

 Ribbon rods Fallin down and CANT get up...

STUFF thrown over HERE...

 More stuff THERE...


And this....There are NO WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christmas Florals EVERYWHERE......

The ribbon Rod....Falling down and NOT holding 95% of my ribbon....all the ribbons I have were MIA!

MOUNDS and MOUNDS and MOUNDS of bubble wrap.....

I was being ATTACKED by bubble wrap!!!

But I got ALL that bubble wrap strightened out and organized into 5 { Yep, I said FIVE } large containers!

 THEN....Ran across another HUGE BOX full of MORE FLOWERS...Like this lil Lone Ranger Fall Arragement....Uuugg!

Baskets with a LOT of stuff thrown in...and NONE of what was in them belonged together...

Just STUFF EVERYWHERE...And 800 hot glue guns...

And at this point I am basically doing the "Stuff Shuffle"...Move all THIS over to THERE, then all of THAT goes over HERE, and some of what I just put HERE goes over THERE....This went on for half the day!  Iwas turnin and moving so fast and so much me THINKS I got WHIPLASH!!!  OH!  Maybe thats the problem with my NECK!

Aaaahhhhhhhhh!!!  A CLEAN basket....NOW were talkin!  And Im BREATHING again...

Got all my Veggies in this basket...

And Fruits in this basket....

And....ITs DUNZO!   PURE  BLISS!!!  Callin my name to come get my Craft on!
 Im SOOOOO EXHAUSTED that my BRAIN actually hurts, and I HONESTLY cant think clearly to write much this morning...SO SORRY!  Im just gonna show yall the pics and let them speak for themselves :0)
HOPE yall enjoy, while I slip back into ZOMBIE ZONE....Like I LITERALLY am gonna SIT and STARE at the Wall!  Here ya go...

Pegboard ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

 OOOOOO!  Looksie!  Theres an Island.....WHO KNEW!?

DOUBLE OOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Theres a FLOOR!  Yippie Skippie!!

 And theres those MIA ribbons...ALL 800 of em!   Hhhhmmm, I just realized I SEEM to use the #800 for everything....ribbons, hot glue guns, ornaments, pens & pencils...

WoooHoooo!   This picture make me SO happy and excited to get out there and DIG INTO all these GORGEOUS ribbons!   All 800 of em!

Everythings in its lil Home...No more MINGLING of the Fruits with the Veggies...The "Girls" { Fruits } are seperated from da "Boys" { Veggies }.....Girls are the Fruit cuz WE are SWEETER!

OK!  I know...your all like ??????.......This is a "Butt Sketch"!  Literally!  Bobby and I went to an event we have here in Lubbock called "CattleBarrons Ball"...its a fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation for children, and there was this guy there called the Butt Sketch Artist...I was like "Really?"   Was just too funny to NOT get it done!  So you turn facing AWAY from the artist and he SKETCHES yo Hiney!  And he does this in about 10 minutes...WOWZERS!  Thats FAST!  I BARELY got my HINEY in place before he got it done!  And look at Our faces...There are NO FACES { which is the way it is supposed to be } but I was like "Dude, you forgot to finish"....I didnt know thats the way it was posed to be....All our friends laughed, THEN INFORMED me that it was supposed to be that way!  THANKS ALOT yall for havin my Back!  Das just MEAN!  LOL!

 "Llllaaaaa"!!!   So clean and fresh and ORGANIZED!  And the Painting behind the basket is me at 6 yrs old {Or so}...My Momma painted it....I am VERY PROUD of my moms Artistic ability!  She is an
 A-MAZ-ING  oil painting Artist!!!  I LOVE YOU Mom!!!  She does Miniatures too!  Like MICROSCOPIC furniture, canned food, tiny floral arrangements, etc!  Its CRAAAAZY!  Hhhmm...I just might need to do a Post on some of my moms work.  It would be something different and I THINIK yall would OVER the MOON Enjoy!   YEP!  Im gonna do it!

Still STICKIN to my "Odd Number" rule...even in organizing!  I am SERIOUSLY OCD!

A FAVORITE of my Custom Florals!!!  This one is dedicated to my Black Pomeranian of 15 years...his name was Pepper and he was THE MOST AWESOME Pooch Eva'!  He was STUCK to me like Super Glue...We had to put him to sleep in June of 2004...I MISS him SOOO MUCH!  Would just LOVE to HOLD him again and Scratch his little belly...OK...Now Im CRYING!  Gods PRECIOUS creation of our lil animals that bring us SO MUCH JOY!   My mom did a Miniature of Pepper....I will do a Post on that too!  It is the MOST PRECIOUS gift my sweet momma has EVER given me!  Thank you mom...I LOVE YOU!
I will ALSO share the Story of my Daddy and Pepper!!!  Its funny AND Heartwarming!

LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURVE all the pegboard in my Studio...It make the room SOOO efficient!

 When the weather warms up, I LOOOOVE to open my French doors to the Outdoors...And when I slide open a window on the opposit side of the room I get a nice breeze and fresh air...It TRULY is HEAVEN in my space...I LOVE it in here!

A basket for my wrought iron...I use ALOT of iron pieces....

And the Flower Market!   Color me HAPPY!!!

And this is the Door into my Studio...And it is NOW CLOSED, cuz it was 10:30 last night and I have been out there the last 3 days for 12 HOURS each day!!!  Headed to the SHOWER!

Uuuuuuuhhhh...I thought I told yall I wasnt going to have alot to say.....What happened to dat???  Well....I am KARA after all...and I have alot to say!

Hope yall enjoyed and I cant wait to get busy out here with yall right next to me!  Lets go CREATE!

Have a BLESSED day!



Liz@ said...

WOW, is all I can say! I'm exhausted too! What great work room you have...I'd love to have that.
Take a break and rest those weary bones!

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Gor-ge-ous! Create away girlfriend. Looks like fun....NOW!

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Looks Awesome! The sky is the limit now!!

Can't wait to see what you create!

Lou Cinda :)

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Kara! Your workroom looks wonderful!! My little workroom was a disaster too! I literally could not walk through it and forget about finding was buried in all the mess. Looking forward to seeing what you are working on...I have been in a non creative mood (been sick so that's alot of it) but am ready to get back creating again! I'm going to market in a few weeks...will you be there?? Kristen

Gypsy Heart said...

Absolutely beautiful! I know you mentioned you wanted everything moved away from the did it! Now the Fire Marshall won't have to pay you a visit...all exits clear. :-)

Seriously, you've done an incredible job on this room...looks fabulous and extremely organized. I am anxious to see what you create.

P.S. LOVE the butt sketch!

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

wooo hoo - and i just realized u habve MORE followers then me lady! - haha - i need some love - i want more people to like me! haha

Blondie's Journal said...

You have so much energy...any to spare?

The room looks spectacular!


NanaDiana said...

Well, YOUR nightmare may be over but mine is just beginning- I am too ashamed to even show you what my downstairs looks like right now...lesss just say-it isn't pretty. YOUR space however, is looking pretty spectacular if you do say so yourself! You did good, darlin', you did just put your little Texas behind on the sofa and veg out for a day or so..

Your Mom is a very talented woman. I can see where you got it from. I'd love to see some of her work too~

Now the only question I have for you today is....Who You Calling A Fruit?>) xxoo Diana

E. Charlotte said...

What a transformation! :) Looks great! I want to come create there too! Very inviting!

The Starr Family said...

I have to tell you... your posts exhaust me!!! In the BEST way: I'm either laughing or dropping my jaw at how awesome your craft room is... I'm trying to focus in on one flower arrangement and then you type something crazy and I laugh. And you seriously move like one hundred miles an hour to get all that done girl!

You are so real, its refreshing!

Robby said...

Wow, that must have been a huge project, but you did fantastic. I wish I had a room like that to craft in!

DanielleisNesting said...

Woooooooohoooooooooooo! Yippe ki yay! Good for you!!! You're my organization hero!

Traci said...

Yeh, I'm jealous. Well, not of all your aches & pains. I say lay around & have a glorious weekend of nothingness!!!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Your studio is totally amazing and it looks like a dream. How fun to get to work and create in that wonderful space. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Shirley said...

Love, love your studio! No wonder you are tired! I actually asked a couple of girls from our church to help clean mine. Since they are 14, they thought it was fun. Oh to be young again. lol

Tammy said...

wow, you did a great job on the room. i can't get over how big it is!!! love it.

Shelia said...

Oh, my goodness! Your studio looks amazing!!! Bless your tiny little heart I believe your almost worked your little self to death!! What a wonderful space you have! Now take that weekend off and rest! You certainly deserve it.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lindy said...

Oh, wow. I loved reading this post -- it gives me hope. Enough said!

Lynn Richards said...

Hi-coming over from inspiration friday...
All I can think of is YOU WIN!!! That is the most amazing transformation of a work room I have ever seen. Awesome job!

Nellie's Cozy place said...

What a wonderful place to work and create!! You have certainly done a wonderful job of organizing everything. Amazing how messy it gets when we are creating. I think it is because when we are creating you are sometimes just looking for just that right thing to make it perfect, so you drag out everything you have and don't put it back till your done, so that winds up being a big mess for me, at least!! lol
Was looking over your blog, I enjoyed my visit
and came to you from another blog - forgot the name, anyway, am wondering what your meme "Whatsup Wednesday" is about, could you please visit me and explain?? I might like to join you sometime. Thanks,
Blessings for a Wonderful New Year,

xinex said...

LOL!, Great post. I am glad it is over and thanks for the photos. You left nothing in the imagination...Christine

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Hi Kara~ What a great space!! I love it - so neat to have a spot for all your fabulous stuff to make even more fabulous stuff with!!!! Lol! Glad you made it through too! Thanks for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday!! :)

Vanessa@Southern In My Heart said...

Hey girlie! I'm thinkin that if someone did a butt painting of me I would be VERY glad to not have my face showing! I've got a little more junk in the trunk than you do! LOL! You did such an awesome job organizing that space and I would just love to come and watch you create those fabulous arrangements. I'd bring the wine! :-) Thanks for sharing this at Inspiration Friday my friend!

Melanie {The Tiny Tudor} said...

What a project- your studio loooks amazing! Now stop staring at the wall and make something pretty ; ) Happy New Year!

Susan said...

Your studio looks awesome!! Creating is a wonderful thing!

Heather said...

I know what you mean about the shuffle things around. And I also have 800 of everything, probably because we can never find it when we need it! Your studio is beautiful!

Jen-CraftOManiac said...

INCREDIBLE room. YOU ARE SO LUCKY. My mother used to do floral arrangments and her work was stunning. She did all my wedding bridesmaid bouquets and centerpieces. Enjoy that fab. room. Jen

On Crooked Creek said...

I SO needed to see, read and look again at this post today. Why? Because I'm in the middle of doing the same thing in my Art Studio! I needed reassurance that there is light at the end of the lower level. . . and a floor. . . and a counter top. . .and a room where I can, once again, create! Thank you! I feel empowered!

Jo Anne said...

You inspire me!! I am taking lots of your organizing ideas & making my space so much more useful. Keep the humor & the ideas coming :)

Tardevil said...

What a most awesome craft room! And, since you did such a fantabulous job on organizing it, I cordially invite you to come organize my Christmas decorations, which are still waiting to jump into boxes. I've never seen a butt artist either. I would (and still) wonder why he didn't add the faces...not trained in that area? Maybe it's just one of those artistic thingies, but it doesn't make sense to me. I will aspire to have a crafting space as neat as yours. Love the paint color and tile choices.

Inspired by you said...

You have a wonderful craft room! All I can say is wow!

Delightful Order said...

WoW!!! Your room is amazing! I L.O.V.E it! and all those florals - wow! Thanks for linking to my craft room!

vintageculler said...

I absolutely LOVE this space! It really makes me want to tackle my "Etsy" room where I have my inventory stored. It could be such a fabulous room with some organization...peg board perhaps? Thanks for the inspiration! I will be back for Wassup Wednesday!

Mikey @ Shabby French Cottage said...

WOW! Your studio is bigger than my kitchen! I'd love to have all that creative space! I usually make a huge mess in my office involving vacuuming up about 800 pounds of glitter or mica flakes!
